The Glass Mill Leisure Centre is situated on the lowest three floors of a 27 storey apartment building in Lewisham. The new centre features a 100 station fitness suite, a 25m eight lane competition swimming pool and a teaching pool; both of which have multi positional floors. It also incorporates two group exercise studios, a rock climbing wall, a crèche, café, meeting rooms and health suite which includes a sauna, steam room, ice room and relaxation area.
The finishes of the elevation are particularly interesting: 1400 glass panels in ten colours are illuminated from above. The LED lighting responds to the surrounding external sounds, such as traffic, trains and pedestrians.
The centre won the award for Best Built Project – Community Scale at the London Planning Awards.
